the outfit that almost never was

when: saturday, march 24, 2012

what i wore: sunglasses: paul frank (giveaway) cardigan: ebay (there’s one left!) dress: h&m necklace: lisa leonard (gift) tights: we love colors (maroon) shoes: simply vera vera wang via kohl’s

where: errands, family walk

i was going to wear this exact outfit four weeks ago, the day rooney was born. an hour before i went to put it on, my water broke. (lucky for these tights. now they just have spit-up on them. does anyone know how to wash tights???)

have a good weekend! we’re going to watch my twin nieces’ dance recital. can you say cuuute?


  • why retailers need to work harder to sell to 18- to 34-year-olds. (thanks to my dad for sharing this article with me! it gives some insight on why i might hate to buy stuff that’s not on sale.)
  • this is still my all-time favorite youtube video. and i don’t even like cats that much.
  • i salute tania for knowing when to say good-bye. even though i’ll miss her, it would be harder to see her blog die a slow death. props to her for going out on top!
  • maternity leave means lots of online shopping. i just ordered a pair of sandals from rue la la and a heart-shaped wall hanging with rooney’s name, birth date and time. we also have one with our names and wedding date. next to purchase: a black maxi skirt and a denim jacket.
